Talk to the hand…

These and other extraordinary examples of hand painting, here.

Thanks, AW (and AW).

As we refrain from rinsing, we might recall that it was on this date in 1620 that the Pilgrims, the early settlers of the Plymouth Colony in present-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, sailed from Plymouth (England).

The Pilgrims were largely a Non-Conformist Puritan congregation who had fled the East Midlands of England, first to the Netherlands, then to the New World, to preserve their religious practice… or so their own accounts suggest.  Gore Vidal has suggested otherwise; remarking that they crossed the Atlantic “not because they were persecuted for their religious beliefs, but because they were forbidden to persecute others for their beliefs.”
